Hockey Night in Canada: now in Inuktitut!

This story’s been getting a lot of letters at CBC North, so I might as well tell everyone about it.

For the first time in history, Hockey Night in Canada will be broadcast in Inuktitut. The Ottawa-Montreal game happens on January 30.  

Here is a short sound clip, of CBC’s Roy Goose speaking with one of the evening’s co-hosts, musician and CBC announcer Charlie Panigoniak.

“He shoots, he scores!” in Inuvialuktun

Thought this was interesting!

  1. So it seems that the game took place a few days ago, but I can’t seem to find any online content showing the commentary being given in Inuktitut. I don’t suppose you know where it could be found?
